  • I live in Florida, do I need a passport to fly to Michigan?

    Best answer: A driver's license or state ID card is acceptable. A school ID is not. It must be government-issued. If you do not have government-issued photo ID, then you may still be allowed to fly. But you should bring whatever ID you do have, show up extra early, and be prepared for additional screening.

  • Problem flying with a samourai sword?

    In 1999, I flew from UK to Portugal with a samourai sword (value: $15,000! - and I have the skills to use it). It was taken (with as mile) to the flight deck, and returned to me in Faro airport. As a pilot, I often flew with TAP, in the jump seat. Since 9-11, things have changed... Now... How can I air travel to,... show more

  • First time flying? Liquid rule and what to do after arriving at the airport?

    It's my first time flying so I've been trying to watch some videos on what not to do while going through security and in a lot of the videos liquids are shown in clear plastic bottles. My makeup bottles are glass but are only 1 oz so I had assumed that it was okay to just leave them in their original packaging and put them in a plastic bag since they're less than 3 oz but should I put them in plastic bottles just to be safe? Scoping through various websites (including the airline's) on TSA regulations doesn't specify anything pertaining to glass makeup bottles. I'm assuming that the liquid rule only applies for liquids that are originally in containers larger than 3 oz but I would rather be safe than sorry. Also tips for what to do upon arriving at the airport would be super helpful because it's holiday season and I know the airport will be very busy so anything to help avoid headache is appreciated. Like checking in, what to do after going through security, etc.

  • Can I take food on a plane?

    Best answer: There is no problem taking only a carry-on bag. A lot of popele do that to save money and hassle. No big deal.

    Best answer: There is no problem taking only a carry-on bag. A lot of popele do that to save money and hassle. No big deal.

    You are correct that powdered items are now facing more scrutiny at security, but that is primarily regarding incoming international flights. You likely will not have any problems at all, especially if your items are all 12 oz or less.

    And FWIW, I take my own food on the plane all the time and I have never been questioned about any of it.


    From the TSA website: "Starting June 30, 2018, if you are traveling from an international last-point-of-departure to the U.S., powder-based substances in carry-on baggage greater than 350mL or 12 oz. may require additional screening at the central checkpoint. Powder-like substances over 12 oz. or 350mL in carry-on that cannot be resolved at the central checkpoint will not be allowed onto the cabin of the aircraft and will be disposed of.

    For your convenience, place powders in your checked bag.

    The measures have already been implemented at U.S. airports nationwide to identify and prevent potentially dangerous items from being brought aboard the aircraft. There are no changes to what is allowed in carry-on baggage at U.S. airport checkpoints."

  • Taking drugs before boarding a plane?

    Dumb question I know, but if I take a couple Kolonpins before my flight to help relax, will anything show up in the the tsa scanner if I’ve already taken the pills? Or is there anyway someone could find out about it in general?

  • Have you ever been on a Aircraft flight when the aeroplane suddenly "Plummeted" to a lower altitude level?

    Best answer: Yes. Coming into Houston Hobbie on a Lockheed Jetstar (4 engine 12 passenger business jet, the exact same airplane used by P. Galore in "Goldfinger") I was in companionway behind cockpit. Late afternoon, we were at about 5K on approach at 5 miles and 200 knots. Curly Corbes, pilot, was talking to... show more
    Best answer: Yes. Coming into Houston Hobbie on a Lockheed Jetstar (4 engine 12 passenger business jet, the exact same airplane used by P. Galore in "Goldfinger") I was in companionway behind cockpit. Late afternoon, we were at about 5K on approach at 5 miles and 200 knots. Curly Corbes, pilot, was talking to approach control or tower (back in 1969, not sure which way it was done). He was asked if he could see the airport. He got mad and said we were getting headings instructions all over the sky, they should know if we could see the airport. Suddenly the copilot leaned over to peer almost straight down and ahead a bit. "There it is, just to the right." Curly said he was not going around on missed approach. We dived at about 45* and swooped in at 230 knots with speed brake open. We went way down the runway braking hard.
    I thought it was all neat until Curly's son, who was right beside me, said "Wow, that landing was a swinger!" And he was a USAF fighter pilot at the time.
